The problem is that problems happen in relationships! And few of us are well equipped to deal with them.

I believe I’ve found direction, right from the mouth of Jesus, on how to use things that usually cause problems in relationships as helpful tools.
On Sunday, we’ll look at Matthew 5:21-22 (a passage right out of the Sermon on the Mount) and other Old and New Testament passages (Proverbs 29:11, James 1:19-20, and Ephesians 4:26) to find out how ANGER can be helpful for ALL your relationships. (I see that look on your face, but it works – really!)
Don’t believe me?

I also encourage you to invite that friend or neighbor you’ve been thinking about. Continue reading

(Editor’s Note:  WOW!  This guy really nails the Church’s mad swing toward ‘not rocking the cultural boat’.  Some would say the Church has gone from being “Salt and Light” to being Pepcid and a night light’.  I address this issue … Continue reading
